In my creative writing club we were challenged to write a limerick about someone who inspires us.
I immediately thought of Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks. Lynch is my favorite NFL player. He is currently the center of a media storm about his relationship with reporters. So I whipped up a little something, and it goes like this:
The Seahawks have a rusher called ‘Shawn
Empowered by agility and brawn
He mistrusts reporters
Giving one word retorters
Our Beast Mode will not be outdrawn
He definitely makes me smile.
